A live action commercial for God of War: Ascension will be playing during this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVII, featuring Ellie Goulding’s “Holding On.”

The trailer has a very dark and emotional tone, something that God of War’s marketing isn’t known for. In fact, there is no actual fighting that occurs in this two-minute trailer, which is interesting, given that God of War is a cinematic hack-n-slash.

I missed out on the God of War craze of the PS2 generation, so this franchise has gone over my head. What do you think of the trailer? Is it misleading? Beautiful? Let us know in the comments below or head over to our forums.
